Northumbria had an outstanding debut season last year in Division One, having finished in 3rd place. They have however had a tough start to their second season having won only 2 of their first 8 games leaving them in 12th place.
Carnegie Head Coach Matt Newby is however aware of the threat that Northumbria pose saying “Team Northumbria always field a highly competitive and well drilled team. Tonight we expect a dogfight, these games are traditionally close and high octane affairs”
Carnegie have also had a tough start to the season, being hit by a spate of injuries throughout the squad. This has left them with a 3 win and 4 loss record leaving them in 6th place. Both teams will be keen to get to the Christmas break in winning form.
Tickets will be available on the door at £6 Adults, £3 Concession and £15 Family (2+2) with more information available through the club’s website, www.leedscarnegiebasketball.co.uk
